Earthbound Farm is an American farm located near San Juan Bautista, California. It is the largest producer of organic salads in the US. It was also the first company to produce prewashed, packaged salad greens on an industrial scale. Earthbound Farm was founded in 1984 by Drew and Myra Goodman, on a 2.5 acres (10,000 m2) farm in California’s Carmel Valley. Just over two decades later, the company employed over 150 growers on 30,000 acres. By 2015, nearly 50,000 acres were in production. In The Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan referred to Earthbound Farm as "a company that arguably represents industrial organic farming at its best."
